WSBA Governance

The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA which determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The Board of Governors consists of the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, and members elected from each congressional district and at-large.

Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this congressional district map. Choose "Congressional," click on "Find My District," and then click on the map next to the symbol marking your address.

A proposed bylaw amendment to Article XI(F) regarding legislative activity by WSBA sections will be presented for first reading at the Board of Governors meeting on July 27, 2017.  The purpose of the proposed amendment is to support sections taking action effectively and efficiently throughout the legislative process.
